[crowd booing] [crowd chanting u.s.a.] >> jennifer: that look on his face, it's as if he was reminding himself of the deal he struck to get this far. that he wouldn't talk about the climate. even though when he was governor he acknowledged global warming as a real problem that requires real solutions. but instead, mitt romney is going to speak only for his corporate funders and the dirty energy empires that many of them run doing what he has to keep the pipelines of oil and campaign cash flowing. and that includes pandering to the far right who shout u.s.a. rather than confronting this frightening reality that we have entered a new normal in which everyday life is punctuated by frequent and intensifying natural climate disasters. and the megaphone of this fringe wing fox news, keeps reinforcing that message. >> where's the proof? these global warming

they carefully, strategically, dressed up mitt romney as, well, first a conservative in the primary, and then as a moderate and the poor guy, he was mocked cease lesly for being a moral flip flopper. and then what i went to state legislatures and adopted all sorts of laws to limit the vote. and they worked hard at that. but after all of that hard work and frankly after their humiliation in many of their strategies, their plan still didn't work. they still didn't win. so what gives? here is what gives. the people saw through all of it, and yet, the gop still can't seem to come up with a better game plan. today they kept hammering the same old thing. here is dick morris on fox news. >> we need to understand just how weakly this president was reelected. by the skin of his teeth. we need to stand up against this socialist agenda, and stop him from fundamentally changes the united states. >> jennifer: block him at all costs? isn't that exactly why the american people rejected the republican party yesterday? and yet leading conservative thinker, grove norquist actually do

candidates opposed green energy loans for electric vehicles, mitt romney was very outspoken. he wanted to do away with the green energy loan programs that funded things like the nissan leaf. in fact, in 2011, the house republicans almost brought the government to a halt because they wanted to cut about 20% of the programs that allows auto companies to retool plants. so you know, there is a lot of members and as you pointed out earlier in the show, this did become, in part, you know, an anti-obama -- because the president has called for a million evs on the road and republicans, you know, opposed it for a lot of different reasons but one was certainly political. >> jennifer: for example the president and ceo of general motors, dan ackerson is a known republican is the auto industry working republicans to get support for electric vehicles and if they are, how come they're not more successful? is there an oil lobby on the other side of this? >> certainly the oil industry is very powerful. they are out lobbying but remembe
romney was not elected. the american people liked most of the president's policies, and they want the government to function. if i were a house member, a republican, and i'm thinking of 2014, i would find a way to come up with real proposals and make meaningful change in the nation's tax code. >> jennifer: they are in a box. if they put a specific proposal on the table for either medicare cuts or specific loopholes they want to close whatever, it means that they're bound to those things. that's why nobody wants to put anything in writing. today speaker boehner appointed candace mill for chair the house administration committee. now all week, we've heard all the theirs were men. do you think this is intended and will quiet down the critics that the republicans weren't living? >> no. i mean, it's a nice gesture. it's wonderful to see another woman in a leadership position in congress, but the republican--enough cannot be said about the fact that they need more women. they need more people of color and you should not have to be called out in the media for lack of female reputation am

romney finally conceded florida today. florida joins seven other swing states in the blue column. just as vice president al gore predicted here "the war room" on tuesday. well-done, mr. vice president. so for all of you keeping score at home, the final electoral vote tally was 206 for mitt mitt romney. 332 for president obama. that would be a route. i just want to confess i had 303 in our pre-election electoral vote pool so al gore beat me fair and square. today, cbs reported a republican adviser said that actually mitt romney was "shell-shocked" by his loss in florida and his florida adviser today expressed regret, telling the "miami herald"... >> jennifer: well, he isn't the only one looking forward to the next fight. washington insiders are ready to rumble over the fiscal cliff and how to keep the country from careening over it, for a sense of what's at stake let's just take a tiny peek over the edge. if congress cannot reach a deal, every tax cut that was enacted since the year 2001 would expire. most importantly th
if governor romney had won half -- i'm flipping to the youth vote or if millennials didn't vote in several states at all, the states would have flipped red. >> i read a column a couple of months ago, long before this whole conspiracy theory started taking over the nation. polling methodology today is still basically set up to undercount people who look like me. it's also low income people and the reason that is the case because most polling is done by phone land lines. how many young people do you know have phone land loans? so i was looking at this data and interviewing pollsters who were acknowledging if you are polling for a race in a retirement community in florida, your number also probably be pretty accurate. so that's why i wasn't completely stunned that the turned out in bigger numbers than anticipated. i interviewed lisa butterfield jones, and she say she wasn't surprised at all. because there wasn't this enthusiasm gap that the rest of the media was covering all year long. >> jennifer: christine and keli are going to stay right where you are. after the br
